Dance With Joy

August 30 - September 2

Come join us as we celebrate our 24st year. Enjoy three full days and three long nights at this beautiful, relaxing as well as rustic retreat near Highlands, NC in the Blue Ridge Mountains, with its incredible mountain views and natural surroundings.

In addition to dance teaching sessions and dance parties lasting long into the night, in a wonderful dance hall called “the Tree House”, you can enjoy heated rooms, hike many trails, enjoy afternoon wine parties and take part in our traditional Kabalat Shabbat and Havdala services. You can feast on 3 fabulous meals a day and the legendary on-going yummy snacks guaranteed to satisfy even the hungriest of dancers.
Non-dancing family and friends (including children) are welcome too.
